  • Cover
  • Dave Brubeck
  • The Amazing Life and Times of Dave Brubeck
  • By John McDonough
  • DownBeat pays tribute to the late pianist and composer, who achieved major stardom in the 1950s and held his headliner rank well into the 21st century. Because longevity alone doesn’t guarantee an audience, this makes him unique in the jazz world. Brubeck—whose 1959 quartet recording Time Out was the first million-selling jazz album—may have been the last jazz musician in the world whom everybody knew and liked.
  • Features
  • Gary Clark Jr.
  • ‘I’m Not Scared of the Blues Police’
  • By Shaun Brady
  • It’s hardly controversial to declare, as Gary Clark Jr. does, that blues is “the foundation of American music.” What’s considerably less common is the abandon with which Clark explores the hallways of the building that’s constructed upon that foundation.
  • JD Allen
  • The Matador
  • By Allen Morrison
  • If the tenor saxophonist’s sound is easily identifiable today, it’s due in part to his unique voice as a composer. For JD Allen, composition is king.
  • José James
  • Genuine Expression
  • By Michael J. West
  • José James has made a decision : He doesn’t want to be a “jazz singer” anymore. He now sees himself as an artist who wants to make room for a wider range of creative possibilities.
